Genki is approaching 300 outlets in its home country and provides dining at various levels, from quality fast food in downtown locations, to elegant upscale dining outlets. It is also a truly international franchise that you will find from Singapore to Hawaii. In Kuwait, you will find the dining is in line with its setting in Arraya Mall: peaceful, elegant and relaxed. The conventional Japanese fare is to be found and the sushi is truly excellent. They have the prime ingredients of Chu Toro tuna and O-Toro tuna, which will please the true aficionados of sushi. As with many Japanese restaurants there is an abundance of makis to be had. For us, the outstanding and must-have choices are the Diera Maki (shrimp tempura, crabstick, cucumber, crispy and special sauce). This will appeal to and satisfy the most experienced of maki eaters and is an excellent introduction to the novice. The Tokyo Ura (crabstick, crispy, spring onion, special sauce and sesame seeds) had us drooling too. These are the standouts, but we feel confident that whatever you choose from the large menu, you will be delighted.
Genki is located in Arraya Complex in Sharq (2299 7933/4) and at The Spot in Messilah (2225 5226) and is ppen daily from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.genkisushi.com.kw or follow @genki_sushi on Instagram.
